I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

A Warrior's Hat!

I have taken a little break from my Knitting and embarked on a journey through the stars to the Klingon Home world, Qo'noS , to get inspiration for this Skull Cap or hat. It embodies the Klingon Trifold Insignia. This is the start of the Hat. I am using Lamb's Pride Worsted, 85% wool, 15% Mohair. I am carrying the yarn along. I am using the Brown Heather and Prairie Fire colors from this bunch.


The second picture shows you the story of the hat. I find that carrying the yarn along gives me a lot of freedom to be creative in my endeavor. Creating a one of a kind hat is one of the biggest pleasurable endeavors that I take. It is amazing to see the story the wool and the hat are trying to tell you. I will tell you more later on this week. This hat is to be a form fit. This wool does not stretch much, but if you want a hat that fits to a T this is a good choice and a great quality material for that.



Part of me wants to make it really big and felt it. I will refrain from such endeavor at this time lol! I think I will finish the hat soon, I will not cut the yarn off until the client tries the hat one. If you want a one of a kind hat this is the way to go. Thanks for stopping by!

That is so cool, I want to learn to make things instead of straight stitches.
